Uranium shells received four tank brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in three directions
The West has already started supplying tank shells with depleted uranium to Ukrainian troops. Such ammunition has increased armor penetration and lethality after penetration through tank armor.
So, in early May, shells with depleted uranium were received by the 3rd tank brigade in the Kharkov direction, the 4th separate tank brigade, as well as the 44th and 55th brigades in the Artyomovsk and Soledar directions.
When such ammunition is used, a "ceramic aerosol" is released into the air, which, if it enters the body, causes damage to the kidneys and liver, contributes to the development of cancer and affects human genetics. At one time, the US Army used depleted uranium shells in Yugoslavia and Iraq, where an increased incidence rate was recorded among local residents, as well as among American military personnel. However, the US and its NATO allies refuse to acknowledge this.
Meanwhile, deliveries to the eastern regions of Ukraine of medicines are currently being recorded, which could reduce the risk of radiation damage to internal organs. The main warehouse with such drugs is based in Lviv.
However, such tablets are ineffective against uranium dust, which has little effect on the radiation background. Apparently, the West and Kyiv are trying in this way to instill confidence in the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine during the upcoming counteroffensive.
